    postal stamp question

    I am having something sent to me in the mail, and was instructed to (when ordering), include a SASE w/ 62 cent postage. I have some of the Liberty Bell "Forever" stamps, which if I understand correctly means that they are worth whatever the current stamp is worth, which is presently 44 cents.

    So do I include 2 of the Liberty Bell stamps, or am I misinterpreting the meaning of the "Forever" on the stamp? yes, I googled it to know what the 'forever' meant but don't want to get this wrong. I know I could save a few cents and go to the post office and just get exactly 62 cents put on but I don't want to go through that hassle.

    Do I put 2 of the stamps on? Or will one cover it and I'm reading something wrong?



    And please, no jokes about ordering from some Nigerian prince I know who I'm ordering from and exactly what I'm receiving.

    Two stamps will cover it, but you will be overpaying.

    Thanks. Know I'll be overpaying, but not a big fan of the service at the local post office and don't want to deal with them.

    It really sucks how someone will come to your house and take something to someone else's house anywhere in the country for 44 cents.

    That's how I going to move back to Iowa in a few years. USPS!
